July 8–26, 2013
University of Washington, Seattle
The Research Training Group in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington will host a summer school on solving inverse problems via microlocal analysis, aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduates who have the required background. Students will attend lectures in the morning and problem sessions in small groups with mentors in the afternoon. On-campus accommodation and meals will be provided, plus a travel allowance of up to $600. The Summer School is supported by an NSF Research Training Grant. Support is restricted to U.S. citizens/permanent residents; international students can be considered but will have to pay all their own expenses.
The course will be taught by Mark Anastasio, Guillaume Bal, Francois Monard, Plamen Stefanov, and Gunther Uhlmann.
Prospective attendees can visit the website for a full course description and prerequisites.
Undergraduates who are looking for summer research opportunities are encouraged to visit the National Science Foundation’s “Search for an REU Site” Web page at http://www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/reu_search.cfm and click on the “Mathematical Sciences” link. Students can also find research opportunities in the mathematical sciences that have been identified by SIAM News press time, funded both by NSF and by other institutions, listed below.

May 20 – August 16, 2013
The goal of this MBI NSF-funded program is to introduce students to exciting new areas of mathematical biology, to involve them in collaborative research with their peers and faculty mentors, and to increase their interest in mathematical biology. The program consists of three parts – each including a mix of educational and social experiences:
- Two-week Introduction (May 20-31, 2013): Tutorials, computer labs, and short-term team efforts designed to introduce students to a variety of topics in mathematical biology.
- REU Program (June 3 – August 9, 2013): An 8-10 week individualized research experience as part of a research team at one of the participating host institutions. ***Apply for Program***
- Capstone Conference (August 12-16, 2013): A student centered conference featuring talks and posters by students doing research in mathematical biology, keynotes by prominent mathematical biologists, a graduate studies recruitment fair, and other special features including a conference dinner and social event.
The on-line registration form will require:
- Two letters of reference
- A ranked list of three projects that you want to participate in (see below)
- A statement indicating your reasons for wanting to participate in this program
***To receive full consideration, completed applications must be received by January 31, 2013.***

The SIAM Student Chapter at the University of Pittsburgh Greensburg, along with the UPG Division of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering and the Pennsylvania Psi Chapter of National Mathematics Honor Society, is sponsoring the Applied Mathematics Conference for Undergraduate Research in Science (AMCURS) at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg on March 24, 2012.
The conference celebrates and promotes undergraduate research in applied mathematics or any science related field. Students are invited to participate. Registration is required but there is no fee to attend the conference.
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science and five other agencies (DHS, NASA, VA, Department of State, and Department of Labor), in collaboration with the Partnership for Public Service, have developed a pilot website to highlight science and technology (S&T) careers in the Federal government and provide a collection of resources of interest to students and professionals considering an S&T career in public service.
As you may know, Federal agencies face many challenges in recruiting S&T talent, including: Read the rest of this entry »
The Infinite Possibilities Conference, a national conference designed to promote, educate, encourage, and support women of color interested in the mathematical sciences, will be held at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on March 30–31, 2012.
The agenda includes inspiring keynote speakers, research talks and poster sessions, and panel discussions ranging from advice for graduate studies to navigating paths beyond the degree. The day before the formal start of IPC, there will be a short course in mathematical biology funded by the MSRI collaborative diversity program and organized by the IMA. In addition, a special component for high school attendees is planned for the Saturday of the conference. Read the rest of this entry »
